Story Notes:

This was (and is) originally intended for the fanfic100 challenge at Livejournal, and working with the prompts they offer, but I thought it might just fit here. Not beta'd as of yet, put repeatedly read through and self-revised. I may upload worked-over chapters later.

The story itself starts in our protagonists' youth; Nerdanel is still going by her (in Elleth!Canon) father-name of Istarnië - but you will see, I suppose. Just a warning - this story features several OCs that have little to no canon-backing; most notably Nerdanel's three siblings.

This particular chapter started out as a daily drabble ("Nonage" as found in "Many Journeys"), but quickly decided it wanted to be more. And since it fit well with the prompt for "Beginnings", I decided to take up that idea and work with it...

2. Chapter 2 by Elleth [Comments - 4] (394 words)

Warning: Chapter contains OCs.

A Talk among siblings, and a realization. Or is it?

3. Chapter 3 by Elleth [Comments - 1] (297 words)
The arrival of a certain prince in the house of Mahtan. (We're deviating from the chronological order now. Sorry.)

4. Chapter 4 by Elleth [Comments - 1] (423 words)
Another episode from the lives of Fëanor and Nerdanel. For the prompt "Insides" at fanfic100 - a discussion of ósanwë-kenta.

5. Chapter 5 by Elleth [Comments - 3] (1053 words)

For Rhapsody, who asked for 'my Nerdanel', and for the prompt 'Outsides' at the Fanfic 100 challenge. The line 'I am never wise around you' originated during Furius' and my LF/N chat sessions long ago, and is used with permission.

This chapter takes place not so long after 'Insides'.
